More About This Recipe

  • Make this favorite minty milkshake at home in minutes! ‘Tis the season for that famous green shake that everyone loves! But hey, here’s a secret – did you know that it is SUPER easy to make 'em homemade? It only takes a few ingredients, a few minutes, and maybe more than a few sprinkles (if you’re like me!) -- and your DIY Shamrock Shakes are ready to go in a flash! I made mine with vanilla ice cream and mint extract. But if you wanted to save a step and throw in some chocolate, you could also just make this with some mint chocolate chip ice cream. Either way, it’s easy peasy, and lots o’ fun!Add in some green food coloring to get it looking as minty as it tastes. I found that gel food colors are more intense, so you use much less to get a better color. Go with gel or paste food coloring (sometimes called icing coloring). Top with some whipped cream and sprinkles, and enjoy!
